There may be more films in the A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th franchises, but the eight films in The Conjuring universe so far have grossed $2.1 billion worldwide.

Since we’re celebrating horror movies on DT this month, we decided to revisit all the horror movies from The Conjuring Universe and rank them from worst to first.
8. The Nun (2018)
It’s easy to see why nun Became the second spinoff from Magical Movies. When Bonnie Aarons is in full makeup as the demonic nun, Valak, she is truly terrifying.

Mia (Annabelle Wallis) and John Form (Ward Horton) witness the murder of their neighbors, Pete (Brian Howey) and Sharon Higgins (Kerry O’Malley), by psychics, who also attack them.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the most recent non-spinoff in The Conjuring Universe, and it feels like it’s lost a lot of its excitement compared to the two films that came before it.

5. The Life II (2023)
to be honest, life second This is very unnecessary and didn’t really need to be done to fill in any backstory after the first film. If anything, the story of the nun’s reappearance magic 2 Now even more complicated after the events of life second, But it’s admittedly a better film than its predecessor, thanks largely to the introduction of Storm Reid as Sister Debra, a young novice who is having trouble keeping her faith.
